posavak with us from vanderbilt university. >> susie: u.s. oil production hit a 15-year high in september. the up-tick is thanks to the controversial drilling method known as fracking. average daily production reached 6.5 million barrels a day. that's almost one million barrels more than a year ago. if that momentum continues, the u.s. might deliver on that prediction last month from the international energy agency, calling for the u.s. to surpass saudi arabia as the world's largest oil producer by 2020. here's one good thing to come from the destruction of hurricane sandy-- verizon customers will be getting faster, and more, telecom services. the company said today it is replacing damaged copper wires with fiber optic cable. that upgrade from older, slower copper allows verizon to offer more digital services, including bundling phone, internet and cable tv. and it means an increase in revenues for verizon. tom, that was the message from verizon's c.e.o., speaking at an investor conference today. but it didn't do much for the stock. verizon shares fell, like many of its fellow d

short of horrifying. let's bring in the head of the department of medicine at vanderbilt university medical center in nashville. great to see you again. >> hello, shepherd. >> sarin, tell us about it. what does it do? >> it is nasty and sneaky. it is odorless, tasteless and colorless. it is produced in a liquid form and vaporizes very quickly. you can get exposed by breathing it in. if can come in through your eyes. it can penetrate your skin. if it is on food or water you can ingest it. it obviously causes eye irritation, but most importantly it causes great difficulty breathing because it is a neurological toxin. it makes your muscles twitch. you can develop convulsions and lapse into coma and die. it is serious stuff. >> and it is my understanding, doctor, if you are not treated almost immediately like within a minute or so, there is no stoping the affects. >> well, mild exposures just wafting through the air can lead to being temporarily ill and then getting better. if you get a prolonged dose you can get really sick very, very quickly. furthermore it can get on your clothes and then it

medicine, health and society at vanderbilt university in tennessee, where he also teaches psychiatry, and the author of "the protest psychosis." i want to go to you first. i want to get your reaction to this idea of the nra which opposes any sort of gun registration particularly on national level saying they would like to create a data base, national data base of the mentally ill. >> i have two things to say about that. one is that i think it's understandable so it's not just the nra that's making the connection between mass shootings and mental illness. i think in the aftermath of virginia tech and the shootings in arizona, there is an understandable reaction to say how can we understand this, how can we explain this. only a crazy person, because it's so outside the realm of normal. so there is a tradition in our country i think of trying to link these mass shootings to mental illness. now, the problem with it and certainly the problem with the nra's position i think is that first of all, the association is false in that as an aggregate group, people with mental illness as an aggreg

. i'm going to use it at my class and schools at vanderbilt university this winter. who wouldn't want marty makary as their doctor? to be fair and calm and intelligent and balanced, also to understand the system. it is extraordinarily important. our physicians need to be able to do that. unfortunately, talking to you from a policy perspective, that is not nearly as exciting. i don't do kiss and tell. we have to work to save social security, medicare, medicaid, and the entitlement programs. magical thinking doesn't save the programs. local speeches don't change the programs. chickening out doesn't save those programs. unfortunately, in a political environment, normally we follow the path of least resistance. that means that the medicare program will be out of money in 2024, which is not that much further away. social security itself will be out of money by 2033. those are deadlines we must start adjusting now to me. these are vast and important programs. they are not trust fund dependent and they are harder for counts to comprehend. but it is possible this programs are actually in wors

significant culture war battle. vanderbilt university told christian organizations they could no longer select their leaders based upon their faith. in other words, a christian organization had to consider a muslim or non-christian as the leader of their group. to not do so would be a form of discrimination. so a lot of these christian clubs they stood up and said no, we are not going to do this. they fought back and unfortunately they lost. so now many of these clubs, about 13 of these clubs had to move off campus to hold their services and to hold their meetings. >> juliet: did this apply across board to all clubs there? if there is a muslim club did, they have to do the same thing? >> well, they said yes. but, in actuality, that's not what happened. the gay rights groups on campus and like you said the muslim organizations they seemed to have been held at least this is the argument from the christian groups, they were held to a different standard. from. >> clayton: any big brictions for 2013? >> dave: culture story. >> i think the war on religious liberty is going to be huge. i have
